Fried Apple Pie Canned Biscuit Recipe

Apple pie with canned biscuit recipe is the best if you want a hot fresh apple pie without having to roll out pie dough. The mess with the flour ends up more on the floor than in the crust.Frying these pies in oil give them incredible flavor dripping with apples flavored with cinnamon. I have even served these with a scoop of vanilla ice cram and drizzled with caramel sauce.Oh my god I have died and gone to heaven. Your friends will be so impressed thinking you rolled out the dough for these. I am always saying what can I make for dessert without a lot of effort and ingredients and this is one of those recipes. I always have pie fillings,oil, and sugar in my pantry and canned biscuits in my refrigerator.The thought of those fast food pies will not even cross your mind.Enjoy these like my family and friends do.

If you like these cold serve with a wedge of good sharp aged cheddar. Of course these would also be delicious with a cold glass of milk. I have also made these with blueberry,cherry and peach pie fillings. Kids and adults love these! I have even served these at an elegant dinner party with homemade whipped cream! They are so incredibly simple to make.


Pour the oil into a large cast iron skillet about 1/2-inch up the sides and heat to about 350 degrees F.

Remove biscuits from cans, flour them and roll each 1 out to a 5-inch round. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of fruit filling on a round leaving a 1/2-inch edge all around. Place another rolled out round on top of the filling, pressing around the edges to seal. You should dip your fingers in water and wipe around the edge of the bottom biscuit to enable it to stick to the top biscuit. Dip end of dinner fork in flour and press continuously around edge to insure a proper seal. Repeat with remaining biscuits. Makes 8 or 10 pies depending on the amount in your biscuit can. Place 3 or 4 of the pies in the preheated cast iron skillet. Fry for about 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Transfer to paper towels to drain and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar while still hot. Serve with whipped cream.
